Reengage Community Christmas – Events and activities for older people

November 16, 2022
Published by Dudley CVS

Re-engage is a national charity working across the UK.

Christmas can be a lonely time for many older people.  But it doesn’t have to be. Community Christmas provides a free online directory of local festive events and activities taking place across the UK, which are open to local older people who would otherwise be spending the Christmas period alone. 

Re-engage supports people who are aged 75 and over who are lonely, isolated, or in need of companionship. Each year event hosts are supported to promote their events and activities to older people across the country. Community Christmas advertises Christmas-time events right across the UK in a directory on the Re-engage website. Community groups, charities, pubs, lunch clubs, cafes and other organisations all sign up with their details and are supported to make sure that older people get to hear about the events and can find them easily through the bespoke online directory. And if an older person needs help getting in touch with someone about an event on Christmas Day itself, then they can call the Re-engage office and help will be given to make the connection.   

This is how it works: 

1.      You are an organisation/individual who is hosting an event or activity that is welcoming to older people between 17th December 2022 and 1st January 2023 

2.      Simply add your event details to the free online directory 

3.      Alternatively, contact about the event/activity

4.      The event/activity will be advertised and promoted on the directory, and you can signpost older people, referrers, family members to your event.
